I'm doing some small landscaping around the house and thought you guys good help me out. The first picture is how it looks now and the others are just ideas I have come up with. Which Idea do you guys like best? What plants or shrubs should I use? (shady area only gets morning/evening sun.)

i would mulch where there is no grass, so all the way around the clummp of trees to the left. oak leaf hydrangeas hosta for starters. basic, and will look really good, oh and no maintenance.

Try hosta, azela, or rhodes will work in the shade.

Mulch around the trees has alot of benefits for the trees themselves, as well as dressing up the areas grass won't grow.

Hosta would look nice; just my opinion.

Perhaps some pavers to define the gate entrance?
